Dylan's favourite ballad singer
This photograph of Joe Ambrose in conversation with folk singer Liam Clancy was taken by Joe's brother Robbie. Clancy was the leading member of The Clancy Brothers and was substantially featured on Martin Scorcese's Dylan documentary, No Direction Home. Joe's interview with Clancy - The Clancy Brothers - can be read on outsideleft.com. Dylan once said of Liam Clancy, "I never heard a singer as good as Liam ever. He was just the best ballad singer I’d ever heard in my life. Still is, probably."
